Fight for you like the Israelites,
Prosper you like Isaac,
Promote you like Joseph,
Intervene for you like Esther,
Protect you like Daniel,
Use you like Paul,
Heal you like Naaman,
Answer you like Elijah,
Anoint you like David,
Keep you safe like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
This is my prayer for You
